Virtus Training and Finger Printing

To comply with the Archdiocesan policies, ALL parish volunteers are required to participate in the VIRTUS® Protecting God's Children Adult Awareness Session.    The Archdiocese of Los Angeles mandates ALL staff, whether paid or volunteer, and ALL volunteers who work in any capacity with or around children, the elderly, or people with special needs are required to complete the initial VIRTUS® Protecting God's Children for Adults program.   In keeping with this mandate, we would like to ask ALL parish volunteers to participate in the VIRTUS program. We will be offering VIRTUS® Protecting God's Children for Adults program here at SMT on September 25th at 6:30pm. Training is valid for 4 years. If you are a volunteer for a ministry at SMT, please attend this event.

Copies of Virtus certificates will be kept  in the parish office.  It is our goal to have all volunteers trained and in good standing. If you would like more information on diocesan policies you can visit
